EP067: If Knowledge Is Power, Learning Is Your Superpower!

Working out your mind is just as important as working out your body.


EP067: If Knowledge Is Power, Learning Is Your Superpower!

Drew’s guest today is Jim Kwik aka the personal trainer for the brain. Jim’s story is awe inspiring. When he was young he had learning issues due to a brain injury. He watched movies and read comic books to teach himself to read when traditional schooling left him behind. Jim’s desire to make his family proud and to become a positive role model for his younger siblings led him to find his superpowers. His story of overcoming obstacles, having unexpected help and his ability to name drop makes this episode pure joy.
